Don’t know if I missed it but curious how you started on this journey and how you created these relationships with growers and dyers in India and Pakistan

Good question Lisa

Wow wow Rachel, what a beautiful and inspiring presentation. I love what you are doing. I have just arrived from a rural small village in Uganda, just launched a project to empower local women through soil to soil products. We are working with local natural fibres, palm leaves, banana fibres, millet straw as well as barkcloth. We only use local natural dyes. I would love to share more about my project with you and ask for your feedback, would that be possible? Thank you so much :)

Would you consider doing naturally dyed silk ribbon?
Deanna Wilkes-Gibbs
01:00:59
I would love to read more about how amateur/indie natural dyers could evolve our practical processes to be more like your closed loop. Do you know of any pointers on this specifically?
Juliarose Triebes
01:01:42
Are these various communities able to be in contact with each other (possibly with your facilitation)? Could be an interesting natural resource-brain-swap symposium among artisans and dyers
joan Harrison
01:02:01
I am trying to introduce natural dyeing in the university where I teach…so much resistance! BUT I will use this presentation in my “fight”!! (Also in Canada)
Kaye Crippen
01:04:04
I love the colors of Rachel's blouses - which dyes were used?
Kim Taylor
01:06:04
Have you ever worked with elementary or high school students?
Kim Taylor

My organization, Let
Kim Taylor

Let's Talk Science, is doing a project on the environmental impacts of the clothing industry and our clothing choices
Kaye Crippen
01:07:27
I am retired professor and my professor in grad school synthesized chemical dyes. One of the things I found with students is that they are often more interested in doing natural dyeing. also cite other unis that are doing i.e. FIT etc and scale projects for indigo in U.S. and large community of artisans globally. It is also a good way for students to start experimentation. Kaye

I ran a program this past summer via my orchestra program - the kids are tolerant of my passion and put up with the smell of fungi in my studio! LOL….kids are so into helping the environment! It is exciting to hook them…that is my job - not being an artist, so much.
Kim Taylor
01:08:07
Would love to see connections to local Canadian plants for dyes
Kaye Crippen
01:08:17
yes, cultural importance as well as a way to get students interested in understanding and working globally.
Thea Haines
01:08:19
We were finally able to introduce it into a course at Sheridan because of Rachel’s work; and because students are demanding this knowledge!
joan Harrison
01:08:38
YES! I had not put it in the context of decolonization! Thank you!
Kim Taylor
01:09:32
Will be in touch!
Kathy Hattori
01:09:34
Are women part of the Ajrak dyeing tradition?
joan Harrison
01:10:20
BUT. I hope science teachers will stop using purple cabbage because they get discouraged when it fades so quickly...
Kim Taylor
01:10:48
can you put that name in here again
joan Harrison
01:11:07
Buckthorn is invasive in Eastern Canada! :)
